Where is it?
We live above Crimsworth Dean, on the outskirts of Hebden Bridge. We are within walking distance of Wuthering Heights, the farmhouse immortalised by Emily Bronte, and the landscape is wildly beautiful. There are some lovely swimming holes in the stream which runs through the valley, including Lumb Falls, which is identified in the handbook Wild Swimming. There are some others which are much less known which we you will have to yourself.
The mountain biking is really excellent round here, as is the walking, with miles and miles of footpaths and open moorland. You can walk to Haworth, birthplace of the Bronte sisters, have tea in the worlds best tea shop (honestly - the cakes are unbelievable, as is the tea and coffee ( No. Ten, Haworth)
Hebden Bridge, our local town, only a mile down the hill, is fames as the world's fourth funkiest place, according to British Airways (really - in the in flight magazine). It's full of quirky shops, cafes, an independent cinema with home made cakes and mugs of tea, the Trades Club which hosts good music, including Andy Sheppard in the past and Patti Smith next week.
Just up the hill from Hebden Bridge is Heptonstall, a cobbled 15th century village which affords a couple of hours of gentle ambling. King David Hartley, notorious counterfeiter is buried in the old churchyard, and Sylvia Plath is buried in the new. Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes spent a couple of years of their unhappy marriage here. Ted Hughes was born here and the poems from his volume"Elmet' are based here, including a beautiful poem about mothers galloping their souls in Crimsworth Dean.
There's another fascinating ancient village, Wycoller, nearby. Luddenden and Midgely are lovely.
Within 10 miles there's Saltaire, a world heriatege site, home of Titus Salt industrailist and philanthropist, including Salt's Mill, now owned by David Hockney with a gallery, lovely shops and a great cafe. The Piece Hall at Halifax is also a world heritage site. Further afield, Manchester, Leeds and York are all an easy train ride away and Skipton, at the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, has one of the best castles in Britain.
The world class Yorkshire Sculpture Park and the Hepworth Gallery are within 45 minutes drive.
